located in the southeast of Gonbad-e Kavoos on the top of "The mountain of God", Khalednabi Tomb has a very extraordinary landscape. It is believed that a prophet (Khalid) is buried in this place and he has built three tombs for himself and his two other followers which became a holy place for many pilgrims later.
There is also an infinite horizon of Green hills, the place is a wonderful landscape to watch sunrise and sunset and also to take amazing photos on your adventure tour to Iran.
In the lower eastern hills of the tomb, a strange cemetery with dark tombstones stands out. In these hills, there are tombstones with strange and scattered images. Some of these tombstones are two meters high and they are more than 600 in number. Some tombstones are isolated. This area dates back to the Paleolithic era. No conclusive evidence of the nature of the tombs and the fate of the ancient inhabitants of the area is available, and any scientific and reasoned comment requires careful study and archaeological excavations in the form of extensive scientific research. In the winter of 2016, this area was inscribed in the list of national monuments of Iran as an archeological site.
Wetlands in the Turkmen Sahara region are also home to rare migratory and native bird species. The next attraction is crossing among Golestan national park, which is a memorable journey. The region is one of the habitats of rare animal species that you may happen to see during our trip if you are lucky enough. Walking in Turkmen plains and visiting Turkmen people would be fascinating attractions for every visitor.
Visiting the Khalednabi region and cemetery with its amazing landscapes of the hills would be a unique adventure experience for you. Do not forget to take your camera, there are dazzling sceneries to be recorded waiting for here!
